What length of shock do I use in this scenario?? One of those poor man's lift kits has been removed. Problem is they cut the uca stop completely off the frame. So at full droop there is no shock long enough, and a long lift kit shock is dangerously close to bottoming out. Do I need to worry about the shock being the travel limiter? Even if the truck will only be close to that limit on either jumps or on the rack?

In factory form, the shock is the limiter and the pad does nothing.

If it’s going to be factory height or lower, I’d just run a shock and call it good. If it’s above factory height, I’d run a limit strap and let it take the load over the shock (higher truck will see full extension quite a bit over factory height or lowered)

That is all assuming the lift is gone. If it’s still using the lift, gunna need to know what the cv angle is (not the proper way but I’ve seen enough of these trucks to know where that puts the suspension travel)
